icolo.io has announced an introduction of their hybrid solar products in the Kenyan market.
Kenya’s energy grid is more than 75 per cent renewable, making it one of the most renewable grids in the World
and icolo.io continues its commitment to the sustainability of our industry with the implementation of
Solar Energy systems at our Nairobi and Mombasa Data Centres.
“One of our greatest natural resources in Africa is the Sun and our investment in solar is a strategic part of our global vision to reduce the harmful effects of global warming and conserve the environment as we continue to scale our business,” says Ranjith Cherickel, CEO icolo.io.
The 400kW Solar Systems at NBO1 and MBA1 will support part of the power needs of each Data Centre which can deliver 825KW and 675kW of customer power (IT Load) respectively, thereby helping to manage our energy costs and minimize our carbon footprint. This forms part of the company’s sustainable Green Energy goals being implemented
across all its campuses in Nairobi and Mombasa.
Data Centers are energy-intensive infrastructure projects, and these systems help tap into clean
renewable energy, these installations are equivalent to planting back 100 trees per week and reduces the
data center 3,200 Kgs of CO2 emissions per week.
